    All of the tier challenges are listed in the official rules

  • Kathy says:

    The daily entry won’t let you submit because it wants you to prove that you’re not a robot, but there is no selection to do that on the screen.

    • Jason says:

      That’s a bug that started just today if you try and do it on mobile. It worked yesterday just fine.

      To fix it just go to Starbucksforlife.com on a desktop, the robot thing shows up fine there.

      I assume they will fix the mobile bug soon.

    • Linda J Camp says:

      I had that happen to me I called customer service she told me to use a different browser or perhaps a laptop. I waited a little bit longer and the ability to select I am not a robot returned. It was just a glitch on tDecember 1st I believe. I thought I was the only one thank you for saying something.

    • Brian says:

      Yes there is.

  • Meaux says:

    Hi Kathy, Try again. I think that was a temporary glitch (box not showing to prove you’re not a robot) because it happened to me, too, but it worked later in the day.

  • Kathy says:

    Thanks, all!

  • TRINITY says:

    https://www.starbucksforlife.com/#login just tells me: “This website is best viewed in portrait mode. Please rotate your phone.”

    I am not on a phone. How can I play?

  • Heather says:

    It’s letting me do more than two entries a day with using the no purchase necessary link. Does that mean if I do win it, they’ll see that I did more than two a day? I’m surprised it isn’t stopping me. Maybe it’s letting me do as many that would have been possible if I did two plays a day since the contest started?

  • Ana says:

    This is great!! Thanks for the secret tip!! You’re awesome.

  • Allison says:

    Hi great article about how to play 🌟 bucks for life . thanks so much. Allie

  • Linda Ritchie says:

    Impossible to win Starbucks for Life. I’m a daily purchaser K2+ yearly and can’t even get the 125 Stars. Rethinking my daily choice. To many other options out there.

  • Linda Marie Haynes says:

    How can I play when I do not have a phone. I buy Starbucks all the time. Could some one tell me how I can do this before the game is over?

  • Monique says:

    Linda,
    If you don’t have a phone, you may try playing from any computer — yours or borrowed.

    Best wishes to you!
    May you win!

  • Zane T. says:

    Did anyone else get the skis (aka rare piece) to win the Grand Prize like me? I checked my game board about a half hour later and it was gone!!! What a rip off!!! This happened this past Saturday 12/7 morning.

  • Raptorjesus69 says:

    Haven’t won anything and I’ve played every single day and met the challenges, purchased Starbucks 1-2x a day. Not even 10 bonus stars.

  • Melissa says:

    I keep getting duplicate pieces and starting to believe this is a rip off.

  • AH says:

    I agree with raptorjesus, I play every day the free way, and I have gotten 25 bonus stars once. Every category on my board has two spaces filled and I can’t seem to get the third, instead I keep getting duplicates. There’s no way you have won “hundreds of stars” and free drinks. What a lie dude.

  • What would be helpful to known is how many people are getting stars. What are our chances? For example, 100,000,000 stars and only 29,030 winning game pieces.

    This would be a 1:3440 chance to win something.

  • CalvoHobbeso says:

    “Ah”…. she was courteous enough to post the # of prizes per item here. If a prize is already gone, you will never be able to win it and will only get duplicates. Don’t blame the blogger, do the math. It’s a probability elimination game with literally millions of people competing for a small number of prizes. Most are probably gone in the first week bc the whales get them. The gimmick is to let the rest of think they are still there so we keep buying more coffee than normal for that off chance that we win. At least she is showing you how to do this without spending extra than you normally would.

    • Tammy Highsmith says:

      OkI have tried all week 2 or more times a day to get a game piece.free game pieces never go to my email. Why?

      • Yves says:

        You might want to check your spam folder or your settings for blocked e-mail. The longest delay I’ve experienced waiting for an e-mail was a half-hour.

  • Yves says:

    Well, after playing all available opportunities so far, have only gotten one instant prize 10 points and a board full of two game pieces out of three. Last year, got maybe 140 bonus points as an instant prize. This is the most pitiful waste of time yet. Don’t think I’ll bother with future Starbucks contests.

  • barack says:

    This wasn’t a super secret

  • BH says:

    Just my personal opinion here, but try playing your game pieces at different times during the day. Whatever random algorithm Starbucks is using to award prizes is based upon time of day.
    Just a guess… YMMV

  • Kye says:

    I agree with other comments. In the first week I had 2 pieces filled in every section. For the past 2 weeks I’ve played daily and have won a total of 10 stars. Every single play is a duplicate. This game is just another (brilliant) marketing ploy from a huge business. And yes, I got sucked in thinking I had a chance when I had all those spaces filled early on … just like every other player. 🙁
